That would depend on what side of the road you ride on.. If the chair is on the left of your outfit, you ride on the left side of the road.. You can see around other traffic and your sidecar is closest to the shoulder of the road..

Supercub,

Since 1986 all new registered combinations have had to be with the sidecar on the left over here.

There`s no statistical evidence to back up the decision but if you think about it,it sort of makes sense....as it keeps the sidecar away from meeting oncoming traffic head-on,and prevents the rider from having to be in the gutter all the time.
